Free Live Webinar Today: Educating African American Mothers on the Importance of Newborn Screening

Educating African American Mothers on the Importance of Newborn Screening



Wed, Nov 13, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

According to the 2011 Commonwealth Fund’s Child Health Scorecard, Georgia is ranked 43rd for child health among the states and the District of Columbia. Regarding genetic disorders, birth defects, and developmental disabilities, many disparities exist and infant mortality is high. The combination of education and resources to families and promoting clinical linkages, particularly for African American communities, is of critical importance to ensure that babies and toddlers have the best start at life.

On Wednesday, November 13, 2013, the Table for Two Foundation will share insights learned from the development of culturally appropriate educational materials on newborn screening (NBS) for African American mothers and families. Presenters will share lessons learned, key findings, barriers to engagement, and recommendations for dissemination and educational opportunities for minority audiences.
